GETTYSBURG, Pa. (AP) - Police in Pennsylvania say a bust of Abraham Lincoln has been stolen from outside a museum near where he delivered the “Gettysburg Address.”

The bust’s pedestal was found Monday morning in the parking lot of the Hall of Presidents and First Ladies.

The president of Gettysburg Tours, Max Felty, says the bust was stolen sometime between 7 p.m. Sunday and 7 a.m. Monday, and just days after the city celebrated the 152nd anniversary of Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address on Nov. 19.

Investigators are looking at surveillance footage from around the 1863 battlefield and encourage anyone with information to call police.
